Taylor Hawks Coach Steps Down

The Taylor Hawks would like to advise that Kirstin Daly-Taylor has stepped down as Head Coach

Kirstin was contracted with the Hawks in 2016 on a multi-year deal. She was successful in implementing a successful game plan on the 9 April when the Taylor Hawks beat the Mike Pero Nelson Giants 81-63, but it has been the only win for the team this season.  

With a view to look for better success, Daly-Taylor has resigned and feels that the team needs a new leader.

Daly-Taylor said she felt the team could improve under refreshed leadership and believed it was right to step down to make the position available for a new Head Coach. 

The Taylor Hawks have accepted the resignation and the decision is an amicable one.

The Taylor Hawks in the interim have appointed Board Member Ben Hill in a caretaker role for the game on Friday in Te Awamutu and Saturday in Nelson.

The four-time NBL title-winning forward played for the Waikato Pistons and was a three-point clutch specialist.
